jamie's red quilt

I finished this quilt for my sister and hoped to put it in the mail today, but it's snowing pretty good here-- i'm thinking it might not be in the mail until tomorrow (sorry jamie).

The quilt is intended to be a wall hanging, so I hung it on my own wall for pics. Now I'm thinking I need a quilt to hang on my wall too. I LOVE it on the wall.

(pics are limited because I was trying to crop out the mess that is my desk that is right next to the quilt...)

  6. I love love love this quilt!!! I am inspired to make one. I will begin collecting red and white very soon. Maybe after I finish the black and white one I am on. I really love how you showed so much restraint with the aqua. It is designed so well! Take a good photo and have it made into a poster for your wall! lol

  8. Gorgeous!! I recently decorated my daughters' room in red and white and that quilt would look amazing in it. I think I'm going to try and make some pillows or something with this pattern. (Including the touch of aqua. So, so perfect!)

  12. It is so beautiful! That you thought do just do the touches of blue is brilliant!

  13. It looks great! I love the small bits of blue too.

  14. Just a delight to see. Colors just make this one something special. Scrap quilts are my forte so I may just make one too.

  15. This is so beautiful - I want to just keep looking at it! I love, love, love the blue square, and the fact that you only used blue in those two places!

  16. Just stunning - you definitely need to make one for yourself!

  17. I LOVE it on the wall, too! I have red walls in my studio, and now I'm thinking something like this would be perfect in there...

  18. I love the red and white together, and the aqua bits just makes it even better! You definitely deserve a quilt for your own wall too, so get started ;-)

  19. It's so beautiful - I'm sure your sister will love it as much as everyone here. The splash of blue really lifts the design.

  20. Red is not a color I usually like but your quilt is so cheery: especially needed on a snowy, snowy day.

  21. oh, it turned out beautiful!!! just love it, and it does look so lovely on the wall.

    don't worry about a messy desk. i was doing the same thing though when cropping my pictures of my pink, aqua, and red quilt that was ready to be quilted. i wasn't able to get all my mess cropped out of it though. :)

  22. The quilt looks great - you have a very luck sister! I am making aqua and red block for project improv - you've given me a few ideas!

  23. I love the shots of this hanging on the wall. I think you might need one for yourself! It would be hard to give up this one.

    ReplyDelete
  24. it's really cute! Love the polka dots in there :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. just beautiful...all of your quilts are so inspiring and beautiful!

    I always have to go to another room for photographing where its nice and clean like my lounge room! I'd hate anyone to see my sewing room in its current state

  26. I love it! I can hardly find a spot in my house to take photos without showing everyone the mess either!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love the free-ness of this! I'd have a hard time "letting" myself mix up the pieces in a block, but it looks marvelous! Also, like the bits of turquoise. Wonderful quilt (just in time for Valentine's decorations too!)

    ReplyDelete
  28. BTW - What is the finished size of the piece and the approximate block size? :D

    ReplyDelete
  29. hi suzyqsparkles,

    because it is to be a wall hanging, my sister wanted it a very specific size, so the finished quilt measured 36x44 inches, each block was 12x11 in.

  30. Beautiful! I've been thinking about a wall hanging quilt myself lately.

  31. oooohhhhh....i LOVE it!!!!! The stark contrast of the red and white with a splash of blue---perfect!

  39. That is an awesome wall hanging! I just got into quilting and love it. I can't wait to have my first one done!!

  40. I just stumbled upon your blog while looking for some quilt inspiration. I am definitely inspired! I love ALL of your quilts. I just love your style and fabric choices. I am excited to mention you on my blog, www.craftpad.com, and refer others to your beautiful site. Thanks for sharing your lovely quilts!

  41. Thank you for sharing your passion with us all... I have been interested in the 'wonkyness'and this style for a while now – it is high time that I create something a little free form rather than Grandma' garden (which I am loving to sew) and the kits that I have been doing.

    Need to have something that will get the dust of the sewing machine and grow from an idea to completion quickly.

  43. This quilt really makes me smile! I love the happiness it spreads. I might just quilt something like that myself.

  44. I'm a first time visitor of you blog. (And new to quilting.) Great quilts! This one in particular. How did you hang it on the wall so perfectly, without any sagging or sign of hardware? Another idea for a tutorial perhaps?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Love the colours and prints in this quilt, i have linked to it on my blog today - you inspire me!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Wow, I just found your blog and I love absolutely everything on here! And that's rare for me. I love this red quilt maybe the most, but it's hard to say. I put you on my blog roll so I can keep up with you!
